Mailart Monday: A High Tea Party

(high) tea party - mailart

It's the second week of the mail art challenge at Stampotique and I was so pleasantly surprised I got chosen by Tera in her top 3 faves picks of last week :) Thanks so much dear! And it inspired me to make another mail art card for the challenge this week using these fun Alice in Wonderland stamps. I used the Mad Hatter and the Rabbit by Janet Klein. I love them so much and hopefully I will get the rest of the Alice series soon. 

I started by stamping them on sticker paper with memento black and coloring them in with letraset promarkers. The background is in fact a promotional card from a museum with an 18th century interior and I used that as the base of my High Tea Party card because it's so fitting! Altering postcards is a fun way to create some quick mail art as well! Because the card was too glossy I put on some clear gesso over it and added Modge Podge golden sheer and a bit of acrylic bronze paint around the edges and fading inwards to create a vintage effect. The speech bubble is a stamp from 7gypsies and I also stamped that on sticker paper. Wrote down the sentences with faber castell pitt markers (I am REALLY loving this pen! It is a lot more effective and black than my steadtler microns!) Then I cut everything out and stuck to the card. I sealed it off with a layer of medium gloss finish and it's ready to mail!

If you want to play along with the mail art theme you can until this Wednesday when the new challenge comes online. Looking forward to see what the next stampotique challenge is :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
